Nama Sushi Bar- Knoxville
Went for our anniversary. Good service and food was very good as well. Will definitely go again.
Always reliable with great food and food service!
We make it a regular stop when in Knoxville.
I love Nama. The atmosphere is relaxing. The waiters are always friendly. The Tempura roll is SO good. Please go there!
Wonderful time and meal!
We go to the symphony once a month and Nama’s is a favorite place to go.
African American guy checked us in with a bad face.
Waitress was very extra.
Nama Sushi Bar is one of our favorite places to dine when we visit our son at UT. The chef's special roll is a favorite dish as you get to input your preferences for the roll and the chef prepares a special roll based off of your suggestions. We will continue to dine at Nama for future visits to Knoxville.
We always enjoy going to Nama when we are in Knoxville. We made reservations on Open Table, and when we arrived, a mysterious group of six was given our table. The Nama staff quickly secured us another table as the restaurant got busier.
The service was great and so was the food! Thank you!
Visit with my daughter
Nama is one of if not the best sushi in Knoxville. It’s pricy but the quality is really wonderful and if you go on Monday or Thursday- their half price sushi rolls can not be beat in terms of flavour or price.
Great food. Service was slow. 15 minuets to get a drink. For those that don’t use chop sticks, they had limited availability of forks. Had to wait for them to wash forks before eating.
I always love namas! Their sushi is always spot on and i get thr flirtini drink its delicious. I also tried one of the hot nama bowls it wsa super yummy. Dont think i have ever gotten anything bad here.
Amazing sushi. We made a reservation, and would suggest it.
We went for half-price rolls, and they were amazing as always!
Nama always is worth a stop. Excellent service, fresh food. Sit in the bar area for over the top service and recommendations. Order a chef's choice plater and roll the dice on something different if your stuck in a sushi rut.
Excellent- as always.
My Californian son was in town, so hubby and I took him out to dinner before a movie at the Tennessee Theater. Nama was a great choice, as all of us enjoy different types of “sushi.” The flash fried calamari and dumpling appetizers were hot, fresh and tasty! My son and I ordered Nigiri and sushimi. All 4 varieties were fresh and prepared perfectly. My hubby enjoyed the sushi roll he ordered, even though he’s not a huge fan of raw anything! LOL. Our server was excellent and answered all of our menu questions, as well as a few questions about sights and events around the greater tourist area. I wish I could remember her name...so sweet, quick and helpful! Our overall experience was terrific.
Amazing! I'm gluten free and have yet to get sick here. They take extra care to make sure all that is in my sushi is safe for me. Great date night spot.
We had the mango hot sake for the first time...it was delish! Also got several rolls off the half price menu and the crab and asiago dip, all so good!! Our server was on her best game...can't wait to go back!!
I love the food at Nama's. I visit all of their locations. Their sushi is very fresh and the sauces are incredible. Great service and wonderful environment for dining.
Just the right amount of food prepared nicely.
Everything was great- rather pricey but worth it if you don’t go there much!
Always great experience
Surprisingly slow service. Very unusual for Nama. Usually they are excellent, but service this night was very slow.
Always a favorite when we are in Knoxville. The service members are nice. The food is consistently good. And it’s right in the middle of downtown Knoxville. Enjoy and have fun!
Everything at Nama's that night was right on. It was a wonderful restaurant.
Monday half price sushi is the best! Not to mention $5 glasses of house wine!
I always enjoy the food when I go there, I just wasn’t super thrilled about our rude host and that our server didn’t frequent our table.
My boyfriend waited quite some time for a beverage and it took some time to get our check; I understand everyone gets busy but our server literally looked lost in the back of the restaurant. Not really a sense of urgency.
Great vibe here, sweetest and very knowledgeable server!
Our food was good, but the sampler platter with the dumplings and spring rolls could use an upgrade. It was a little over-fried, and the spring rolls were uninteresting flavor-wise. We will try the calamari next time.
Excellent food and drinks, excellent service, I Iove Nama!!
Ok for lunch but service fair. Our server disappeared
I love Nama! The best sushi in Knoxville! You can't beat the half price specials on Mondays and Thursdays!
As always, NAMA was delicious. We take out of town guests there, it is a SUSHI experience.
The waitress never refilled our drinks
Unfortunately this Sushi Bar was rated higher than expected. The waitress was completely out of it and service therefore was terrible. Waited for sugar for tea,waited for ginger and sushi just sat there for 10 minutes until we got it ourselves from the bar. Terrible. Will not return This pace seemed very disorganized.
Spent my friends 21st there. Nama downtown never disappoints
Great food, drinks!
Very good food. Vegan-vegetarian optons. Nice atmosphere.
Brought my wife for her birthday dinner. The food, service, and environment were all amazing. This was my first time coming to a Nama restaurant, and it won’t be the last!
I’ve given this place so many chances. It’s so much more expensive than many other and better sushi places in Knoxville. The flavor of many of the speciality rolls aren’t balanced, the spicy roll we ordered was drowning in sriracha, so much so that the rice around the roll fell all apart. I give up.
